Veterinarian (BPsych (Hons) BVSc)
Sarah’s first job on the Central Coast was at Green Point Veterinary Hospital. After two years at the hospital, she left to work at several other hospitals in the pursuit of advancing her knowledge and skills.
Over recent months, Sarah has returned to Green Point Veterinary Hospital, while working as a locum, and has had the pleasure of seeing many of her favourite former patients and clients.
Sarah’s aims for Green Point Veterinary Hospital are:
- Creating and maintaining a respectful environment for clients, patients and staff,
- Ensuring that Green Point Vet Hospital delivers best practice medicine, and
- Building a team environment where staff are happy to come to work.
There is no denying that Vet Science is demanding and challenging work. However, it is also rewarding, even in the sadder moments when we can bring comfort to pets and their owners.
Unfortunately, there is a significant shortage of vets at the moment. So we hope you will bear with us as we face staffing challenges. We will do everything in our power to make your visit to Green Point Vet Hospital as pleasant as possible.
We have a dedicated team of vet nurses, ranging from experienced to trainee. We hope that you will join with us in helping to support them as they work to assist everyone who comes to the hospital.

Leah loves all aspects of her job and will often be found at reception making all our furry visitors and their parents feel welcome. Leah is an asset in our team.
